A great place to raise a family or buy a vacation home for year-round enjoyment is what the town of Fryeburg is known for. The Saco River runs behind the main village, separating farmland from residential. The bottomlands of the Saco River provide a huge flat area—about a mile wide by several miles long—ringed by mountains in nearly every direction. Fryeburg is home to Fryeburg Academy, a private preparatory school, and the International Musical Arts Institute. All high school age children can attend Fryeburg Academy for free. The town is also the site of the Fryeburg Fair, which each October attracts approximately 60,000 visitors. 


Fryeburg also borders Kimball Lake, a small mountain lake with unusually clear water and gorgeous mountain views. Snowmobile trails are accessible from almost every location. North Conway's just 15 minutes away in one direction, and Bridgton is the same distance south on Rt. 302. Enjoy skiing at Mount Cranmore, or go to Shawnee Peak in Bridgton—the largest night skiing facility in New England. It began as a strategic frontier outpost and the earliest town in the White Mountain region. Excellent soil helped Fryeburg develop into a prosperous agricultural center, with the first gristmill established in 1766. Other mills and factories produced lumber, leather, harness, tinware, cheese, and canned vegetables. Fryeburg is today a year-round resort area.
